It’s dimensions are often meek: usually around 32″ tall, and 14-18″ deep, but the console table can be a mighty useful and versatile piece of furniture.
Use it in an entryway as a focal point and a place for your keys to land.
Use it in a living room as a home for table lamps – or behind a sofa to help break up a room.
Use it in a dining room as a decorative accent and for extra serving space when needed.
Use it anywhere you need to break up a wall, or create a focal point in an extended space.
At the Rardon house, we use a console table in the dining room. It has become one of my favorite surfaces to style seasonally.
I’m working on choosing and editing photos from the “Christmas Tour of Homes” house (notice the booties on the floor) that I helped with last year [yes, I’m that far behind on uploading pictures – bury face in palm].

It needed something to break up the wall, but also needed a sleek piece so not to interrupt the traffic pattern into the home. Hello custom-made console table & ridiculous-amazing, huge shutters.
